Feature: Disaster Daze – Words and Photos by Matt Savage

Now in its tenth year, Disasterdaze has proven to be one of the Pacific Northwest’s favorite sickle events. In the weeks leading up to the party I was sweating that I would have to drive my truck over as I was waiting to hear back from our czarist ICBC whether or not my bike was going to pass inspection and be allowed back on the roadways after getting a Notice and Order the month before.

Challenger Autumn/Winter 2014

With the current state of men’s fashun being the way it is (or Kevin and I being the way we are) there really aren’t too many brands doing it for us these days. One of the brands that falls on the other side of that statement is Challenger, their contemporary takes on street classics is always on point and this collection for the autumn/winter 2014 season is a great example of that. So much goodness up in this collection, with the outerwear (specifically the leathers) and the white denim looks being the stand outs for me.

Ben Davis Projectline Fall/Winter 2014

It’s been a minute since we’ve seen anything from the Ben Davis Projectline, SF workwear originals reinterpreted in Japan. Style game crazy here, all on point but impact lost via the model choice – toughen this lookbook up a bit and you’ve got a winner. Click though and take a good look at all the pieces, the full strength of Japanese revisioning on display.

NuGgETS fall/winter 2014

NuGgETS is a new line to me, but this f/w 2014 collection is game tight with the palette, staple fall looks with a unique touch. Some of the pieces are a bit fashun and seem like add-ons to an otherwise fairly linear line, but that’s probably the point, shake it up a bit. Really thought through and cohesive, looking forward to following this label for seasons to come.

Stray Rats Summer 2014 Lookbook

Miami based Stray Rats are back with their latest lookbook for the summer 2014 season. Shot by Nick Sethi and laid out in a DIY zine style, really into the presentation from the Strays on this one. The collection itself is a bit more expansive than their more recent offerings but still sticking to the core principals of proper dirtbag street attire.
